My February Julep Maven Box

This month's Julep Maven box was the Afterglow collection and romance was in the air. I selected the Modern Beauty box because I wanted to try the new beauty products. I ended with a generous surprise from Julep (felt the love). Here's what I received:

- Illume Eye Brightener in Pick Me Up $22
- Glow Highlighting Powder in Champagne $28
- Add-on: Nail Decals - White + Red Mini Hearts
- SURPRISE! 6 Hartleigh nail polishes!

Julep apparently surprised mavens with bonus Hartleighs but I received two bonuses. One note said "Because you're an AWESOME Maven, here are five bottles of love to share with your girlfriends. Thanks for all the joy you bring to our lives!" - The Mavens at Julep while the second note said "I snuck a holo glitter top coat into your box... I hope you love it! We put the heart in Hartleigh for you, Maven. Happy Valentine's Day!" xoxo Jane. I was feeling the love but saw that several others got this too. Stay tuned for a Valentine's Day mani!

"A lightweight eye illuminator (great for face, too!) that doesn't fade away." The color was a little too dark for my fair complexion to be considered an "illuminator" but I did like it as a concealer. I'll have to play around it more to see the best use I have for it and the brush is stiff!

"An ultralight powder luminizer that feels weightless and looks flawless. Light-diffusing diamond powder and vitamin B6 reduce the appearance of wrinkles, discoloration, and pores. Julep's exclusive Power Cell Complex™ blends the benefits of three age-defying, skin-boosting, ultra-hydrating ingredients: Rosehip seed oil delivers essential nutrients to soothe and repair; Malvaceae Lipid Extract™ improves barrier function so skin retains moisture; and Green coffee bean oil invigorates skin and promotes cell turnover." That's a lot of "benefits" for a highlighter. It was a pretty color but for a drugstore dupe check out Wet 'n Wild's Reserve Your Cabana for under $4.
